I’m going to see what the reaction to this shot is before I describe anything about it.
Update: Owen was right, this was produced using a torch, with a cardboard tube taped over it to focus the light a little more. I pre-focused and setup the shot first, then switched all the lights off and traced around with the torch trying not to wander too far off the subject and onto the background. The laminate floor isn’t the best background, but I think its reflective properties helped. I’m trying to think of other things that would look good lit this way. Any ideas?
